Guest Post: A Dash of Self Love

Good Morning! I am having a blast with my family, and yes, this vacation was MUCH needed. So thank you to all my guest bloggers and all you lovely people who show support to them and to me.

Here’s a great read, from Meg!!

Hello! :)

I’m Meg and I blog over at A Dash of Meg where I chat about my daily life and share healthy recipes and heart pumping workouts!

I also like providing my readers with motivation and inspiration to live their life with more self-acceptance and positivity because life is truly too short and we should all be happy and appreciate the wonderful lives we have been blessed with!

I know, from experience of dealing with an eating disorder in the past, that loving ourselves can be a difficult task, but it definitely is achievable!

Showing ourselves self love on a daily basis is very important, but we often get caught up in the negatives and dwell on those instead. Why? Why is it so hard to appreciate who we are and celebrate that while forgetting about the “flaws” we see in ourselves?

In my opinion, I think it has a lot to do with comparison. When we pick out a “flaw” about ourselves we are usually considering it to be a “flaw” because it is different from what is viewed to be “perfect” or “acceptable”.

Don’t get down on yourself for not being able to run as fast as the girl who won the last marathon you participated in.

Don’t tell yourself that you are no good just because you cannot lift as heavy as the girl next to you at the gym.

And never tell yourself that you need to change the way you look because the model on the cover of the magazine you just bought appears to be “prettier” than what you see in the mirror.

I think it’s safe to say that we’ve all had these thoughts before and this is exactly what leads us to be so negative about ourselves. I want to put an end to negativity, which is why I began High Five Friday. If you haven’t heard of High Five Friday yet, make sure you check it out here. It is an entire day, each Friday of every week, dedicated to congratulating ourselves on what we can do – the successes we achieved throughout the week!

One of the biggest favors you can do for yourself is appreciating what you can do and forgetting about what you cannot do.

Celebrate yourself. Celebrate everything, even the little things.

If you didn’t run as fast as you wanted to on your last race, just be proud that you did run a race! There are a lot of people, including myself, who have never ran a race in their life before!

If you aren’t able to bench press your body weight yet, don’t be discouraged. There are plenty of people who have never picked up a pair of weights in their life before. Be proud that you are trying and that you have goals.

If you don’t have the luscious locks like the model in the magazine, just be happy that you have hair. Always appreciate what you have.

Someone always has it worse than us and, like I said before, life is much too short to pick ourselves apart and only see the negative.

Celebrate the positive because that is what will lead you to self-acceptance.

I hope you enjoyed this post! If you would like to read another post that I wrote about comparing ourselves to others you can find it here.

If you ever need support, I’m always here for you! It’s my passion to help others! Never fear to send me an email to dashofmeg@hotmail.com or “like” my Facebook Page and message me on there!
